Trouble starting smbd

Hi folks!

I'm helping install samba 2.0.5.a on a Data General DG/UX Intel based 
Aviion server.  The config and compile went well, but when trying to start 
the daemon, we get the following errors:

[1999/10/07 11:49:44, 0] locking/shmem_sysv.c:sysv_shm_open(597)
  ERROR: root did not create the semaphore
[1999/10/07 11:49:44, 0] locking/locking.c:locking_init(174)
  ERROR: Failed to initialise share modes

Anybody any idea what could be causing this?  I'm sure it is something 
fundamental, but can't seem to track it down.

testparm did not come up with any errors.

We are running it with "Security = share" bacause there is no match 
between the Windose logins and the Unix logins.

Any help greatly appreciated.
